Arrive in Malibu at the barn where I stable my mare, Sophie, and we’ll begin with some breathwork to open your lungs and heart to receive this transformative experience. I will lead a gentle yet embodied yoga practice that focuses on the breath as will as utilizing mantras (chanting) and mudras (hand positions) to align your chakras to most fully receive this blissful experience. Through my verbal prompts and demonstration, I will guide you within your body to experience your innate wisdom and your own sensient animal nature. As we look to Sophie and the herd, we learn that horses often mirror what is happening on the ‘inside’ of the humans nearby and from there we begin a dialogue of discovery and ultimately freedom. Depending on your comfort level and the size of the group, you will either do yoga while sitting on Sophie or take turns with other participants. You will definitely have the opportunity to sit on Sophie and have a picture taken! We will finish this experience with a guided meditation to send you off with a deep feeling of relaxation, connection to nature, and Shakti Love.
Riding helmet Bring your own helmet if you have one, otherwise I will provide a helmet to use for your picture on Sophie.
I’m an Equine & Yoga Therapist working with adults & children to discover their authenticity and LOVE. My horse, Sophie, is an incredibly kind and gifted healer. We love to share our passion for horse healing with people of all ages, race, ethnicity, and orientation. I also work with Military Veterans and First Responders suffering from Post Traumatic Stress within the Save A Warrior organization. I live in Malibu and am so proud to call this stunningly beautiful part of the world home. When I am not leading clients in yoga and equine therapy, Sophie & I love to ride the local hiking trails.
We’ll be at the barn, Zad Ranch, in Malibu where I stable my mare, Sophie. There are approximately 10 other horses at this barn ranging from therapy, leisure/trail, and fancy show jumping horses. This is a private barn that does NOT offer trail rides to the public. Zac Ranch is truly a slice of heaven with its ocean view, beautiful trees and plants. You will be in the midst of Malibu’s natural splendor in a multimillion dollar neighborhood.
